The Cheriton Town Council met last Monday for a special meeting that installed former Northampton County Supervisor Larry LeMond as interim mayor. This coming after the surprise ousting of popular mayor Joe Hable. The meeting lasted eight minutes.
While council was pleased to have Mr. LeMond back on the bench, other citizens have told the Mirror that the entire episode didn’t “quite smell right”, and that “the corruption at the county and in Cape Charles has finally made its way to Cheriton.”
Some of those suspicions appeared justified when LeMond announced that he was planning to officially run for mayor in May. He told council that he planned to file his paperwork the next day.
The ouster of Mr. Hable has left citizens with more questions than answers.
The Mirror will continue to follow this story as it develops.
